Project Monitoring and Control

Project Monitoring and Control are those activities and documentary artifacts created in the course of tracking the progress of a project against performance criteria specified in the project plan. These performance criteria include schedule, budget, risk mitigation plans, internal and external commitments, management of project data, and stakeholder involvement. Tracking and monitoring activities usually involve holding scheduled reviews (both internal and external) and identifying corrective actions as needed and tracking them to closure.

Common artifacts that should be created and archived by projects as evidence of project monitoring and control include highlight and progress reports, presentation materials from formal reviews, attendance or sign-in sheets from formal reviews showing date, time location and names of attendees, e-mails between project stakeholders, and internal project tracking tools (such as MS Project files, tracking spreadsheets).
